Description Misha H. Ali 2011-09-19 07:23:01 UTC
Description of problem:

Using the   entity to indicate a non breaking space, as follows:

Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 (this allows no breaks between the name of the product and the version number)

The above usage causes a topic failed XML validation error (Example error below):

Topic 5158 failed xml validation.

Note: A topic which had   removed is still breaking. This may be due to other global entities (< and > are used in this topic) but it may be due to some other factor therefore the global entities is still not completely tested.

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a topic.
2. Enter a product name then   and product version between para tags.
3. Brew.
Actual results:

Topic xxxx failed xml validation. 

Expected results:

Successful brew to stage.

This issue also affects the CLI tool, as seen in Bug # 734986.
